Good Read: Carshare co-op expands fleet with eight-passenger van

Our fleet just keeps on growing. Read all about our latest expansion!

Thanks to the support of the Old Grace Housing Co-op, City Councillor Cindy Gilroy, the City of Winnipeg, and members and residents who penned letters of support, we have added an eight-passenger van to the Wolseley neighbourhood! Our operations manager, Philip, was recently interviewed by the Winnipeg Free Press about this exciting addition to the fleet.

Here’s a snippet from the Winnipeg Free Press article:

Carshare members in Wolseley have access to an eight-passenger van, thanks to a little co-operation.

Peg City Car Co-op, the only carshare in Winnipeg, announced in a media release that the van will be stationed at the Old Grace Housing Co-op, which opened on June 14 at the site of the original Grace Hospital at Preston Avenue and Arlington Street. The van is the third vehicle placed at the housing co-op.

To get the money needed, Philip Mikulec, the car co-op’s operations manager, said in an interview Tuesday that they teamed up with the housing co-op to apply for the Community Incentives Grant Program. Mikulec added that area Counc. Cindy Gilroy played a significant role.

“Without her championing this, it wouldn’t have happened,” he said.

CTV Winnipeg also did a great little spot with us, highlighting the new van. We already have trucks, vans, and a cargo van stationed in other neighbourhoods, but this is the first larger vehicle within walking distance for our Wolseley members.
